This is simply done through the settings on your phone, and means that either your mobile data is on, or you're connected to a Wi-Fi network.

Both of these methods are incredibly common. However, for those who are new to owning a smart mobile device, it may not be common knowledge.

How to play multiplayer

Multiplayer was actually added post launch, as the game initially only had singleplayer based gamemodes, with fewer characters also.

To play online it’s as simple as selecting multiplayer from the main menu oncew you've established your internet connection.
